MODEL SOCIETY HAIL FROM THE STREETS OF LONDON AND CREATE A QUINTESSENTIAL BRITISH SOUND THAT BREATHES NEW ENERGY INTO THE SOCIAL COMMENTARY OF TODAY’S SUBURBAN LIFE.

Brimming with a confidence not seen since the swagger of the Britpop days they write songs that grab you from the intro and don’t let you go till the last note is viciously struck. Lyrically they offer an insight into a cosmopolitan yet paranoid world and are often described as a musical blend of Blur, Bloc Party and Hard Fi.

Having recorded tracks with the likes of Paul Tipler (Idlewild, Placebo) and Steve Levine (Beach Boys, Culture Club) they have received radio backing from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, Chris Hawkins and BBC Introducing’s Gary Crowley. They also have a successful list of live shows under their belt including festival appearances at Bestival, The Great Escape, Guilfest and a main stage performance at CockRock. They put on a captivating live show and have so far shared a stage with The Cribs, Django Django, Buzzcocks and Catfish and the Bottlemen.

* A TRIPLE HEADER NIGHT*

The Schizophonics (US)
The Schizophonics are, in one word, EXPLOSIVE. Their frenzied live performances tap into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled the MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom. When they hit the stage, they grab your attention and don’t let go. They’ve built up a formidable reputation in their home base of San Diego and a fervent following among locals. “One of my favorite live bands ever!” proclaims Tim Mays, who has run the Casbah for over 25 years and seen literally thousands of live bands come through his doors in that time. “The Schizophonics bring the goods every time they play,” he enthuses. “Pat Beers is like a cross between Jimi Hendrix and James Brown – yelping, wailing, shralping the guitar with his left hand while gyrating all over the place; Kyle joins in the mayhem on bass and Lety keeps it real behind the kit.”

INDIE - Act Of Love + Miguel Monkalban Band + Lisa Canny

Sunday Special - 7.30pm ONLY £5 OTD

 

Act of Love – and when the mood takes us, the Act of Love Unlimited Orchestra. Fasten your seatbelts please, this thing’s got a mind of its own…

Act of Love, from Brighton, England, have been described as “painting pictures with music.” As if to prove the point, the band’s tunes have been featured in film, radio and TV on the BBC and ITV in the UK and in United States, Europe, Japan and China.

After earning their stripes at the musical coalface, alternating touring and long hours in recording studios and with confidence born of a wave of positive feedback from both a solid following and fellow artists, Act of Love are full of excitement to see the hard work paying off.

Lisa Canny

After graduating with a B.A. Irish Music and Dance at University of Limerick, Lisa went on to achieve a Masters Degree in Ethnomusicology at University College Cork in 2011.  

Now a full-time performer, Lisa tours Europe and the U.S. on a regular basis with groups Celtic Crossroads, Fuinnimh, and Celtic Spree.  

Lisa is currently working on her debut solo album: writing with grammy winning songwriters/producers Jodi Marr (Mika, Ricky Martin, Paloma Faith), George Noriega (Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez), and Tim Mitchell (Shakira).

INDIE/PUNK/ROCK - The Smash + The Collision + Lost In Stereo (Debut EP launch show) + Lucid Genius

INDIE/PUNK/ROCK - The Smash + The Collision + Lost In Stereo (Debut EP launch show) + Lucid Genius

The weekend is here! And what a line up we have for you lucky people of Camden!

7.30pm £5 OTD

 

The SMASH! was formed by three 40 something  punk rockers who were bored of playing the wrong music with the wrong people for the wrong reasons. Playing standard rock covers at weddings and birthdays,- you know the sort of thing: Johnny B Good, Sweet Home Alabama.... ZZZzzz . It may pay a bit of dough but don't make yer feel it.

Glaswegian Pop-Punk band Lost In Stereo is made up of 4 members, Ellis, Andrew, Jon and Deano. 

Singer Ellis, born in Melbourne, Australia, moved to Scotland when he was young eventually teaming up with Andrew and Jon. 

When the boys left their native Auchterarder and Montrose for University in Glasgow they eventually teamed up with hard hitting Glaswegian drummer Deano which is where the band started believing they had something fresh and exciting to offer. 

Throughout 2016 Lost In Stereo have been developing their sound and entertaining audiences with their energetic live show in notable venues throughout Glasgow. They have supported big acts such as SayWeCanFly, The Janoskians and punk legends The Ataris. Good support slots have been a good measure of how the band's popularity is increasing however when you pack out Glasgow’s iconic King Tuts for your headline show, it is a statement of your bands potential. 

Bands such as All Time Low, Blink 182, Story So Far and Neck Deep are big influences on their music but they also have a unique sound which gives them their own identity and having spent time in Glasgow’s 7 West Studio’s with talented producer Chris Marshall the band are now ready to reap the rewards of all their hard work. 

The Lost In Stereo boys have released two singles “The Butterfly Effect” and Little Nothing More” which have been steadily increasing their fan base and now in 2017 they are gearing up to release their debut E.P. “Famous First Words” which has two tracks co-written by their friend Stef Abingdon of the successful parody band “The Midnight Beast”. 

The songs are filled with energy, big choruses and plenty of hooks which are sure to stick in your mind for days and will definitely inspire the audience to participate whilst watching the boys perform live.

The Collision

Lewis has achieved so much in such a short space of time. He first started singing and playing guitar in 2015 starting out in local pubs but soon moved on to Festivals, Charity events and filling his diary with twice weekly gig dates in and around the area. The area Lewis now performs in has grown further afield ranging from Brighton, Guildford and local cities nearby. In June 2016 Lewis released a 4 track EP of his own original music to a sold out Joiners in Southampton accompanied by his band The Collision, formally known as Lewis Smith and The Collision . The band have grown from strength to strength and their diary is filling up fast alongside Lewis’ solo gigs. Lewis' music has appeared twice on BBC Introducing, on Express fm and the Flash radio station too. Recently Lewis appeared on the local tv station Thats Solent being interviewed and footage of Lewis performing was televised. In February The Collision took to the road on a mini south coast tour with LMS which sold out the Joiners and Hope and Ruin in Brighton. This year the band have some great festivals and music events to look forward to. They are releasing their first EP as a band in the Wedgwood Rooms, Southsea on November 11th 2017.

LUCID GENIUS
Lucid Genius are an authentic London based alt/rock/pop quartet with influences ranging from Beethoven to Metallica and from Pink Floyd to Rush.

The band combine their age, experience and musical influences to perform memorabl, bold, punchy songs with angst ridden lyrics and anthemic choruses. Their music is fused together with frenetic drums, pumping bass and guitar sounds to die for. 

Founding members Michael (drums/vocals) and Marc (bass) have teamed up with Paul (guitar/vocals) and Luisa on vocals. 

With their own dedicated rehearsal/recording studio in Camden, London, Lucid Genius craft their songs at leisure 24/7. The band all contribute to the songwriting and performing by collaboratively adding, subtracting and combining music, production and lyrics.

CLUB NIGHT - Des Was a Bowie Fan: INDIE CLUB NIGHT

CLUB NIGHT - Des Was a Bowie Fan: INDIE CLUB NIGHT

Des Was a Bowie Fan Radio set sail this week, guided by candelight pumping out the sounds of the Pop and post-punk margins, re-homing lost and often label-less ghosts in the annuls of Pop.

John Peel is dead, Top of the Pops is dead, Eddie Argos's dream is dead, and the media gatekeepers, industry lobbyists and inbetweeners keep a grim hold on our ears, plying us with sounds that have done too many rounds with the man for the kind of dancefloor we love. The impulsive, the lyrical, the raw and the real still scream in Pop music, but now overwhelmingly from the outside of everything. For every Alvvays who make it through are a hundred The Stammers. For every Veronica Falls are myriad Indelicates, findable for the knowledgable few but lost to the common outsider waiting for something to happen, the Dai Discos who once heard Placebo on Pop TV, and saw the gender binary defied for the first time amidst the raw rattle of guitars.

As for the clubnight, the need of familiarity informs the communal Pop experience. The buzz is in the shared moments. But when it comes to the new the market-making media and music industry lets the dancefloor down. Divides and rules. The gatekeeper casts a shadow on the communal celebration of the new. At our regular night we transgress in our impulse, willing new blasts from the margins onto the dancefloor. They are usually met with a rush of empathy, a delayed realisation of their lack of familiarity, and then an abandoning of the need for familiarity in the heat of the mixer. Then they're forgotton as the music rolls on. For the few who are familiar they're their favourite part of the night - providing the rush of the new and a tantalising hint of their communal celebration. Tonight, to celebrate our new vessel the club will fly in the spirit of this will, in the spirit of the original Northern Soul clubs, devoted to the new, with the classics available only by request. The ghosts have come home. And we bid you to burn.

For a night of some of the hottest new soul, funk, pop and R7B talent, look no further than Camden’s Fiddler’s Elbow this October!

Topping the bill is Wax. Wax are a four piece from London who specialise in playing intense and brooding electronic pop that has 80s synth pop elements strewn throughout. This sound has seen them receive rave reviews and won their past single, “1848” the title of BBC Introducing in Kent’s Record of the week. With a ton of hype around them, we’re expecting big things from these guys!

Providing support are The Twist UK. This five piece from London fuse elements of pop, r&b, funk and jazz to create something unique and sublime. They may be relatively new to the scene, but their sound is already turning heads on the underground circuit!

Portuguese songstress RiTA and her band will also be joining us to play her soulful, funky jazz sound. RiTA will be playing songs from her brand new EP, “AGUA” at the show which, if the teasers she’s been posting online are anything to go by, is set to be an incredible debut!

Loui Andrew George is a Bristolian singer-songwriter, who now resides in London, and plays gospel inspired blues/pop. Joined by his band for the evening, Loui promises to mesmerise with his signature spectacular vocal performance.

Talented young songstress Cassa Jackson will be there too. Cassa has played some huge shows in her time, including Colour Day Festival in Athens and at Wembley Arena, so expect a massive performance from her and her band.

Dark alt/pop artist Aniya will also be on the bill. This singer-songwriter has been gaining momentum on the underground scene thanks to a number of great reviews and her reputation for electrifying live performances.

Mixing blues, jazz and soul, Tialian is a solo act from Essex whose laid back sound and beautiful voice will truly enthral you!

HOUSE ABOVE THE SUN
London band House Above The Sun are led by vocal/guitar duo Jim & Ariel Moreton, who since 2015 have been developing their distinctive blend of rich male/female vocal harmonies, inventive guitar motifs and dynamic grooves. Exploring elements of blues, folk, alt-rock, beatnik Americana and country, their growing repertoire of original songs offers a seamless blend of mellow country-soul with fiery, blues-fuelled rockers. In both gears the poetry and melodic flare of Jim Moreton's songs shine through. 
They released their self-titled debut EP in November 2015 and are currently preparing to release their first full-length album, "Five Hours North", on October 27th 2017, preceded by the just-released lead single 'Runaway Devil'

COAST TO COAST Fiddler's Elbow - Camden

DJ CELLO & 
very special guest
GLADDY WAX

Entrance £5/4 before 22.30. NUS £3 all-night

COAST TO COAST’s return at the Fiddler’s Elbow for a one off special night with guest The Legendary GLADDY WAX.

Coast to Coast started in the west end of London in 1999. Then it moved to become a monthly, packed and lively, Saturday night in the now trendy part of town - Old Street, E2. Eventually it became a weekly night, which was indicative of the growing success Coast to Coast had as a club & Cello as a respected DJ. Part West-Indian blues party, part 60s Soul night. DJ Cello’s Coast to Coast was the new scene in town. Whether you were visiting London for the weekend or living and working in the Smoke, Coast to Coast was the main event in Town at this time. An eclectic fusion of Northern Soul, Reggae, Ska, Funk & Boogaloo combine in one of the unique club nights in Europe. Packed out with all types, enjoying rare black music from the 60s in an atmosphere more like your best friend’s birthday party, this really was a truly special event in London Town. But sadly in the summer of 2009, Coast to Coast came to an abrupt end due to problems with the venue. Dj Cello then move on to do a night in Brixton, Brixton Rocket,

In 2011 Coast to Coast made a number of successful comeback shows in North and East London respectively. The show in Kensal Green, 2011, the legendary ‘Dave Barker’, who 1971 brought international fame as part of a duo with Ansell Collins with a number 1 hit in the UK, ‘Double Barrell’, made a surprise appearance to an absolutely electric atmosphere, which convinced Dj Cello he should bring back his legendary nights more regularly.

Choosing the right venue in the right location is absolutely essential for a regular night. The Fiddlers Elbow in Camden is just that. Being only 3 mins walk from Camden Market, it’s in the heart of the music capital of the world. Camden has always been the best location for alternative music and different types which is perfect for Coast to Coast. 

The Fiddler’s Elbow is a music lover’s paradise with a full in-house PA and brilliant sound engineer to provide a quality of sound most would be envy of. The Fiddler’s offers the kind of friendly atmosphere rarely found among the city’s mid-sized music venues. A vast amount of experience and a genuine love for music is portrayed through the welcoming owners, and bar staff which is perfect for DJ Cello’s Coast to Coast. In addition to the main bar area, there’s a small bar away from the main music area that gives people a chance to chat and ‘get away from it all’. This leads to a small outside smoking area. The cheapest drinks in the area also help to make it an attractive night out.

Coast to Coast’s opening night at the Fiddlers Elbow was massive, with special guest ‘The Legendary Dave Barker on the mic’, the atmosphere electric and then went on to enjoy 4 great years at this legendary venue. Late last year, DJ Cello stopped the nights due to personal problems but tonight it returns once again which promises to be a fantastic occasion.

Our special guest Gladdy Wax, legendary for his Sound System at the Notting Hill Carnival and highly respected selector has been around for years! Very well known for his popular radio show. Has a great following, so expect loads of people tonight! His selection of Ska & Reggae is one of the best. This promises to be one of the finest evenings yet at Coast to Coast. So make sure you get down for this one, it's going to be hot! For those of you who enjoy Soul, don't worry Gladdy has it all!! Tonight at Coast to Coast expect only the best in Ska, Soul, Motown, Reggae & Boogaloo

A night not to be missed!
